We live in an idyllic small beach town in Florida. Our house is situated on a large lot in a great and safe neighborhood surrounded by mature oak trees, azaleas and camellias. It has 4 bedrooms and plenty of space to play both inside and out. We enjoy sitting outside on one of our three shaded decks or at our family size picnic table enjoying the beautiful sunshine.
We are within walking distance to the beach, numerous parks, a recreational center that includes a swimming pool and kids play area, and a quaint historic downtown area with multiple shops, restaurants and a marina. Often times, we walk or bike to the beach or downtown area for one of the many festivals and events that are offered year round. We are also within minutes of local A-rated schools, shopping and the area hospital.
Our town is filled with numerous young families, many of them we call friends. We are active in our local church just minutes away and often participate in activities for children and adults alike. The sense of community is noticed everywhere from the grocery to the gas station and everywhere in between. And everyone is so friendly; you rarely encounter someone without a smile.
Family has always been important to us. Leanne grew up in a small, but close-knit family who remain an active part of our lives. We are fortunate to have Leanne’s parents nearby and they can’t wait to babysit. Mike, on the other hand, experienced the joy of growing up in a larger family, who we enjoy visiting all over the country throughout the year.
You can rest assured your child will be immediately welcomed into the family with open arms, complete with two sets of grandparents, multiple aunts, uncles and cousins who are already anxious to meet the little one. We have a great cast of characters within our family as well, from the sports minded to the artistic, from the loud to the quiet, and from the serious to the hilarious. One thing we all have in common is our love for and support of each other and each of our differences.
